    Episode 202 – Vision Boarding Abundance

    New year new TFAL?  Or are we back to our usual shenanigans? Actually, for the first time in months, and thanks to Ryan’s terrible internet, we met up in person and recorded an episode!

Feels like chilling at home…

…or at the house of a childhood friend. This podcast truly captures what it’s like to be a Filipino American who’s knowledgeable, concerned, and interested in their community while also reserving the space necessary to bust their own and each other’s chops. Salamat for presenting a vibrant range of the Filipino-American experience.

Proud Filipina

This show makes me feel like I’m sitting down having chisme with my ates and kuyas. I love the family dynamic and Filipino insider jokes (I laughed so hard at the tinna-pie joke in the thanksgiving episode 🤣🤣🤣) Salamat to the hosts for being so funny and for creating a comfortable space for us lahat.
